We were a group of 12 for dinner with a reservation at 6:45pm on a Thursday. Everything went wrong that night. We arrived in 3 or 4 subgroups over 10 minutes. I was in the second subgroup and the owner did not even know where our table was when he "greeted" us. A bad sign, as we were the only... More

Spent a wonderful evening in this restaurant. We had the "Degustations Menu", a 4 course menu. Smoked swordfish (Hors d'œuvre froid), absolutely delicious, aubergine torteline with mint (Hors d'œuvre chaud)), great, polenta with chanterelle and filet of summer deer (pièce de résistance), fantastic, chocolate cappucino (dessert), great. Wine: Tenuta Sette Ponti Crognolo Toscana IGT (2010, 0.75l), fruity rich in tannines.... More

A little expensive for pizza, but definately worth it. The other dishes looked also very good - so stay tuned for updates. :)

I recently had a business lunch with colleagues at the restaurant La Perla in Luzern. This restaurant is an excellent address. Service is great and the food is truly Italian. The fresh pasta with black truffle was just spectacular. Worth a visit!

I love Italian food and this was a very good Italian restaurant. The menus is only in German,but one of the waiters translated into English so we got what we wanted. The quality of the food was excellent, the meal itself was simple as Italian food is, but the quality of the ingredients is "tiptop" as my friend would say.... More

We came to this restaurant by accident but it turned out to be a great place. The food was delicious, the (native Italian) staff friendly and the dishes were served smoothly! In all, we had a nice evening.

A very nice, calm restaurant but unfortunately we felt a bit weird only surrounded by locals. So, the attention and service could have been much better, even when the food was OK.

Authentic Italian in Lucerne. Service was excellent and food very good, caprese salad off to a good start and mains of taglietelle with mushrooms and lasagne both good. Highly recommended and great value for Switzerland.

I was born and raised in Lucerne and lived here (and in the close suburbs) for more than 30 years and this restaurant here is definitely one of the best in town! It's hard to get good Italian Food in restaurants; the best one you still get when it's home-made or in Italy itself. But this place here offers real... More
